Abstract

As instructors of information literacy, our goal is to equip learners with the skills needed to critically evaluate, use, and create information effectively and ethically. Listening and speaking skills are vital, as the information proficient learner listens to information, asks questions, and synthesizes the information with which they interact.

As instructors, we model these skills and behaviors within and outside of classrooms and libraries. We teach learners how to read information, model metacognitive skills, and support learners with how to effectively articulate their findings and new knowledge. We recognize that our pedagogy extends beyond the traditional classroom, which can include other learning spaces, such as meeting spaces. Taking a broader understanding of “learners” can include traditional students as well as our colleagues and teaching moments can abound within these interactions.

As teachers, we must model and set learners up for success in classrooms and meeting spaces and ensure they are inclusive and productive. This involves best practices of teaching and instructional design: understanding learner characteristics, creating effective learning outcomes, designing assessment to measure learning, creating effective instructional materials, and using feedback and reflection to improve our teaching.

In this workshop, learn how to apply best practices of teaching and learning to your meetings in order to make them more productive and inclusive. Participants will have time to plan an upcoming meeting or revise a past meeting in this workshop.
